Empire Crane names Pitre manager of New Jersey branch


Empire Crane Company has named Karl Pitre the new branch manager of the company’s Bridgewater, New Jersey, location with oversight of the serve center, parts sales and sales team support.

Pitre began his career with Empire Crane in 2012, and was named service manager for the Bridgewater branch when it first opened.

“I will be traveling a couple times a week to put machines in service,” he says of his new role. “I will also get more involved with our sales department to insure that our parts and service teams are supporting our new and existing customers. The New Jersey location has grown steadily in the 2.5 to 3 years that we have been in business and we foresee great growth to come with our current equipment lineup and recent additions to our staff.”

Empire Crane was founded by Paul and Luke Lonergan in 2002 and offers machines from Terex and Tadano Mantis, along with Kobelco Crawler Cranes, Shuttlelift carry deck cranes, Manitex Boom Trucks, Wolffkran Tower Cranes and Magni Telehandlers.

In addition to Bridgewater, New Jersey, the company has branches in Syracuse, New York and Boston, Massachusetts.
